CTRnet (Crisis, Tragedy, and Recovery network) is an NSF funded project that focuses on crawling/scanning the Internet regarding tragic events and creating digital libraries of information on those crises. CTRnet downloads webpages in regards to these events to ensure that this information is saved. As an example, CTRnet has over 440 gigabytes of webpages saved just for the Hurricane Sandy event. Our group was assigned with creating a script to walk through the downloaded webpages, finding relevant images, and downloading them. We also researched gallery modules to create a Drupal gallery for our downloaded images.
